Regent Seven Seas Cruises has announced that their World Cruise is going to be back based on popular demand. And you’re going to have a bit of time to save money, too ($60,000!) – this cruise doesn’t set sail until January 2018.
The 137-night, 38,528 nautical mile Navigate the World voyage will set sail aboard Seven Seas Navigator, which recently underwent an extensive refurbishment. Beginning in Los Angeles, guests will visit five continents, 28 countries, and 64 ports of call. They’ll also enjoy several complimentary shoreside experiences as they travel the world, including a pre-cruise gala at the Beverly Wilshire hotel, dinner in the bush at the Zulu Nyala Private Game Reserve in South Africa, and a visit to the Australian countryside with a tasting at a winery in Adelaide.
Additionally, guests will receive more amenities, including first-class air, a comprehensive visa package, unlimited laundry, satellite phone time, and onboard medical services. Navigator was the first ship in the fleet to be refurbished as part of a $125 million fleet-wide renovation project.
The journey leaves LA and sails to the Hawaiian Islands and French Polynesia, American Samoa, and Fiji. Multiple stops in New Zealand and Australia follow, then southeast Asia to places like Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia. The ship will then cross the Bay of Bengal, and make multiple stops in various ports in South Africa.
Crossing the Atlantic, Navigator will arrive in South America for stops in Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil, before heading to the Caribbean for Curacao, Aruba, following by traversing the Panama Canal. The ship will explore ports in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Guatemala before returning to LA on May 25, 2018.
